Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

If you use them don't dive then at top velocity or close to factory. They seem strip coming out the rifle. Had them key hole on the target at 25 yards. Its not a true jacket, just a plating and the thinner the plating the worse the performance. Try them about 1600 fps. I have tried them in SKS and a new Type 56 AK.

I have shot the .308 110 grain plated bullets in a .30 Carbine with decent results, no tumbling noted with a standard jacketed bullet load of H-110. Accuracy was about as expected from the Carbine, and no evidence of stripping the rifling or tumbling, even though this load most likely exceeded the recommended velocity for these bullets.
